Xencelabs Technologies is a new company offering new digital drawing tools. The company’s first product is Pen Tablet offering a clean and minimalist design without keys, enabling users to fully benefit from its 16:9 native aspect ratio. With only 8mm thickness, the tablet features a seamless and gently curved palm; it can be used wirelessly or with a USB cable.
The company says the tablet was developed in collaboration with photographers, illustrators, motion picture, TV, and production artists to closely match the traditional hand-drawing experience. The result is a digital tablet alternative ensuring the optimal mix of comfort, customization, ergonomics, intuitive use and compatibility with different devices and operating systems, the company said.
“Our Pen Tablet prioritizes a faster and more efficient creative workflow with a satisfying, natural drawing experience,” said Michael Thompson, head of professional product, Xencelabs. “This product aims to address common nuances to help enhance the work of creative professionals daily.”
Xencelabs products are available in different configurations: Pen Tablet Medium and the Pen Tablet Medium Bundle with a Quick Keys remote option. The Quick Keys enables artists to incorporate shortcut keys into their workflow through an easy-to-use interface. The OLED display on the Quick Keys shows the assignment of each key and can be used in a portrait or landscape mode.
The Xencelabs device comes with two battery-free pens of different diameters. The thin pen has two buttons while the three-button pen accommodates artists doing 3D work. Both pens come with an eraser, 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity, 3-gram initial activation force, tilt recognition, and virtually no lag.
The Xencelabs Pen Tablet includes as standard all the essential accessories including, the medium-sized tablet, pen case with 2 pens, 10 extra nibs and nib extractor, a USB C adaptor, USB dongle, and cable, a drawing glove, and an all-in-one carrying sleeve.
The bundle version includes the Quick Keys remote.
The standard Pen Tablet Medium is available now at $279.99 and the bundle at $359.99 from authorized resellers and at the Xencelabs store.
